The Bottom Line: ...Ana has 25% more usage in Korea, despite ceding incredible ground to Mercy - who is being played on average 30% less. In other words, Korean players still have not completely taken to Mercy as the consensus 100% pick as NA/EU has.
Oceanic Server Issue fixed (Blue Post)
Can We get back Team Death Match? (Blue Post)
Only 5 slots for Arcade for the short/medium term
Ultimate interruptions changed!
Ultimate Categories: Cast-time, Transformation, Channelled
Console Genji Bug: A Genji slash bug has made it to live on both consoles. This means that Genji can perform an extra slash during his ult activation animation, resulting in a very quick kill if he ults near an enemy. There appears to be a host of patch problems that have affected console only. (FIXED NOW!)
